This leaves about 100 to be chosen including 4S from I Ohio and 24 from New Jersey. The widely divergent claims of the Taft and Roosevelt managers make it apparent that a determination of the actual control of the convention is im . I The committee will take up at that ! by the time the committee begins work. Up to tins morning, 7,SC, of the 1078 del egates to Chicago had been chosen, ac cording to Roosevelt estimates, while the Taft forces record twenty less. The , possible in advance of tin" meeting ol the republican national committee June 6th. time contests involving the seats of at least 164 delegates and it is not unlikely that more contests will be announced differences arise over Maryland, where the Taft managers declare the control of the 16 delegates will not be cleared until the state convention next Tues day and Kansas, where the Roosevelt records show that 14 have been chosen and the Taft records 10. Representative McKinlay, head of the Taft campaign, claimed 4S3 dele gates for the president and cqnceded 237 to Colonel Roosevelt.

Important Road Improvements. W. H. Shaw, road overseer for dis trict No. 5, started road building Mon day on the new road change that starts at the village limits near the I.icurnnce place and skirts the hill at a point about 600 feet east of the N. I', tunnel, and there connects with the Fords creek road. This change cuts out three heavy hills and gives practically a level grade for this road east to the mouth of Fords creek. Mr. Swadener reports the surveying out last week of the road leading from Ahsahka west to connect with the road running from .Cavendish to Peek. This road starts at the Smith place and eliminates the present switch-hack, also doing away with the heavy grade at the William Johnson place. This is a much needed improvement and will bring nuyiy people off the hill to Ahsahka and Orofino to do their trading. Child Recovered . Quite a consternation was created here lust Monday morning when the word was brought to town that t|ie five year-old daughter of Reuben Dennis had strayed from home and could not be fouiuj by the many searchers who had been out the entire afternoon and night. The word was quickly passed nround and 30 men answered the call to go and search for the missing young ster. mouth of Fords creek, were stopped by John Pecklmm who stated they had found the child in the early morning about one mile from its home on the Herve Eller place. It was none the worse for its night in the cold mountain air, beside a log with a brush pile for a pillow. The party proceeded to the where they John Baer, local buyer for Stanton & Co. of Spokane, shipped out two sheared ewe sheep to itis firm Tuesday morning that were record animals of their kind for this territory. The sheep were purchased of B. Tacke, living just south of town, and weighed 260 pounds each. They brought 4 cents a pound on foot and Mr. Tacke realized #16 from their sale. As sheared ewes usually weigli about 100 pounds it can be seen that these were record . . . , j bltdkcis, both in weight diui quality. — Chronicle. Miners Making Money. W. C.

At the Jericho the tunnel is now in along the footwall for about 30 feet, but tile officers of the com pany have given no orders to be gin crosscutting for the lead. It is expected that this will soon be done and then the future of this promising property will be decided by the test of actual values,—Sen tinel. Serious Accident Homer Klmers, the fifteen-year old son of Mr. and Mrs. John El mers of this city, was severely injured last week by being kicked by a horse. The accident is of quite a serious as well as painful nature, the upper right jaw hav ing been broken, the palate torn from the roof of his mouth and nine teeth dislodgeJ. Doctors Slusser, Stocketon and Smith were called and worked an hour or such a matter in dressing the wound and getting the palate back in place. The little fellow has stood up bravely under the trying ordeal and his little friends hope for an early recovery.— Grange ville Free Press. Work on Asylum Buildings. The brick work on the new wing of the insane asylum has reached the third story and the workmen are now waiting the arrival of the steel so that work can proceed on the structure. If the workmen can he secured the brick work on the third story can be com pleted ill about six days. One hundred and fifty thousand brick will be used in the construction of the new wing and improvements incident thereto. It is expected the building will be ready fer occupancy by August 1st. Calls Special Session Judge Steele has called a special ses sion of the district court to convene at Nezpercc on Monday, June 3, "for the despatch of all business pending in Lewis county, both in law and equity." It is presumed the Houser grain con tract cases, which are the same as the Houser vs. Hobart ease now pending in the Supreme court in which a de cision is daily expected, will be dis posed of at that time, and probably other cases requiring the services of jury. There are on the calendar up to date six grain contract cases, nine other civil cases, including three for divorces and two state cases—Herald, T. O.

Before and -i.. • . , . .. dUr " B part ° f reVoll,t,0n man y flags of different designs were used by different colonies and different comnanies of sold iers ' There wer « «»*> « feat i»™*" use at ,he time of the war fôr separation from England. But in 1775 a committee recommended for a nirrSh union plus thirteen stripes. This design _ , , , „ , , congress ado P ted - I au * Jones claimed to have been the first to have raised the national flag, but it seems to have been one of the ra ttl e snake type; though that was not the kind selected by the con . , J ... gressional naval committee in 1776. In June, 1776, it was un officially decided by congress a fid Washington, in view of the im pending declaration, to replace the union by a five pointed star; but the first official adoption of a , flag was on June 14, 1 <77, displac mg the union by 13 stars, and us ing just the same number of stripes. The first use of the flag is disputed; it seems to have been . . improvised and run up over cap * « r» . . , , * n A hired British standards at Fort Stanwix August 8, 1777, after the battle of Oriskany, but a regular flag was made and carried at the battle of BrJndywihe in the fol ■ 0 . / owing September. When Vermont and Kentucky were admitted to the union two new stripes and the same number of stars were added, and no further changes were made for 25 years. I ,0,0 M .. I, . , . Ill 1818 it was finally ordered that the 15 stripes be reduced perroa nently to 13, in memory of the original colonies, and the stars keep pace with the total number of states, on the July 4 after each j - mi w . admission. The arrangement of the stars was not specified and has been left to the taste of the makers. A Challenge.
